My family loves breakfast! On the weekends, I tend to cook a big farm breakfast. In the summer, however, I don't want to eat that much food, let alone stand in front of a hot stove cooking it.   This breakfast frittata is a perfect compromise and uses up leftovers from the week.  I make mine with six eggs because it gives each of us two eggs. If we have company, I add two eggs more per person. If I need more than 12 eggs, I'll make more than one frittata. That's just too many ...

Oatmeal Scones

In honor of my Scotch-Irish roots ... and, of course, St. Patrick's Day, I popped out of bed this morning and made oatmeal scones for breakfast.  Okay, I didn't exactly pop out of anywhere.
